Luxury Yacht Down: What Happens When Central-Craning Goes Horribly Wrong

Tyler Durden's picture


As Bernanke and Draghi carefully try to centrally-plan navigate us mere mortals through this dismal period of market and economic reality, we thought this clip was a perfect analogy for the 'heavy-lifting' job they are doing... and the likely outcome.

Note the rather entertaining gentleman running for cover on the left - the long-only talking-heads?

1/1000 chance there's no more dollar on 9/13. If Germany adamantly nixes the ESM, that should be it for Spain and Italy. Then it's just a matter of how fast the dominoes fall and Spain and Italy take out the Euro and the Euro collapse takes out the dollar.

However, the centrally plannners don't yet want to give up their power, so they do the ESM and the Euro should SOAR. Then it's the dollar's turn to plummet, probably to zero.

It would be more accurate if there was a large team of crane directors assuring everyone that things were going according to plan, and all is well right up until the moment the boat hit the water.

oh my! 

hornets!  what happened? 

and they are such toy-boy hornets when you push the nest with a sick, they come out and pretend they can sting you, too!


silverUrinal's odds were noted by yers trooly;  slim, not none;  i don't object to that;  i actually thought that was well-written

but to do directly from that to "domino-theory"?  c'MON! 

and for me to applaud that people aren't goin for that from him today is bad?

fear mongering is fear mongering

if he is scared, he is scared;  but maybe the "reasons" are not "out there" like they are for the other crackpots i mentioned

if you like drE, that is your preference;  i don't really care;  but i WAS here when showed up and i DID see what he was up to and with whom

so fuk you if you don't like it!

the guy is "dubious at best" in my book

i'm not gonna lie here about this guy;  do your own research!  i'm not always right;  nobody is

but i kinda see him as getting "re-tooled to be more popular" after i forced ORI to back off with two death-match challenges

that last sentence:  people either know wtf i am talking about there, or they don't

tyler does and mikey does also, i would think;  who knows about the other clowns;  but ORI was just a cowarly lion and backed off v/c he was thoroughtly ass-kicked, and by me

ONE of the reason there is so much confusion and fear here is that the site is 'dangerous' in some respects and trolls and "bloggers" are PAID to come and spread confusion and fear

when the search for truth takes a back seat to mythological doom, partisanship, or disinfo about the FED's job and how they are doing and why (at least ostensibly) and a wwweb-game of "ain't it awful" among people who can't think straight... might hear something from me about that bullshit...

a biker BINGO, BiCheZ!

some understand that if one's idea of fun is tooling around on two wheels feeling the solar power and the balance... either learns to pay attention, or one becomes road kill

we do take some solace that at least the taco truck will try to get us before the buzzards up there (which can actually see the taco truck, btw {unless it is garaged})

those checks you mention may not be as "futuristically wonderful" as the seemed just last week, huh?  and if ya learned that here, thank you for your attention

i talk about the FED wanting to keep the checks in the mail, but those are different checks

they say "treasury" on them, not "asswipe's PAC" or:>  "dCasey's & bMauldin'sMarketingDept"

if those T-checks start bouncing, gonna be tough to get out and feel free, even on one of my mythical schwinns, bro

i don't really care for the FED as an instituion ya know, but if it IS keeping the "system" somewhat stable and the checks in the mail...

...why the FUK would any sane person think it was a good idea to rush out and just bulldoze it into the nearest body of water?

probably just a buncha brain-dead nannies talking on their cell phones about tyler's abs while they're out driving to soccer in their armored tanks and eating broccoli...

And that video of the boat epic fail just about says it all.

Over 6k reads on that Cashin thread, must be a new record.

We have no large amounts of food stored in reserves in the US.

It's that whole Joseph of the Old Testament Bible economic strangulation of the sheeple plan re-played on us again.

This cycle is almost complete. De industrialized, no food stores, no money or gold, stupid sheeple.

They should have killed that Joseph when they had the chance.

great, "michael"!

but whatever ya do, don't dump one of yer mindless "tipping point" and "cycle" turds in the box at the BOTTOM of the page, evah!

your trolling record and disrespect for the site would be sooo diminished

cause ORI would hafta re-train yer ass-fuked "machinist" "body of knowledge" if ya da did!  and you KNOW it too, son!

you were correct on the election analysis;  i came to same conslusion;  at just abt the same time too

rPaul has some decent ideas;  however, he is a party hack;  even if they "walk out now and go 3rd party" it would be for mittens to beat prez0, as i recently developed here fully

the FACT that you can't see rPaul clearly doesn't surprize slewiethe ORI-esque "cosmic drama" you keep insisting others MUST see here may be keeping you from actually thinking.  clearly.  either

you are so interested in predicting things based on you fragmentary sophomoric knowledge of "myths" that only people with the same problem, like ORI, and his ilk


  1. rPaul ran for the party leadership
  2. he lost
  3. rPaul doesn't like mittens either;  he is not insane ir a total fool.  he is SIMPLY the archetypal party hack. but he should just go home, not continue;  his "delegates" are relevant?  did shiva whisper in yer little ear?  unhhh... duh?
  4. he probably feels like a damned fool now that he has finally 'figured out'  what 1/2 our site was trying to tell him months ago;  bc he may not be a fascist neoCon, just an "innocent" hack FOR THEM
  5. clearly the man is incapable of any independent thought or action; much like y.o.u. and almost all of his "support"
  6. i "liked his message" too, mikey
  7. but you may have noticed:  i never trusted the fuking SOB, did i?

good riddance to ya!  don't evah! use the box on the bottom of the page?  it would indicate that you haven't just been another asswipe here to troll for doctrinaire purposes and to confuse and WEAKEN america

which. btw, just isn't true, is it?  the FACT that you are still unaware of what you are ACTUALLY doing here will make yer handlers and friends especially proud of what they have done with you now that you are "almost done" here

maybe they will reward you with a new screw machine!

joseph, whom a man of your or ORI's stature would not recognize as bearing the traditions of WISDOM and the keenest faculties of insight and symbolic understanding "should have been killed"

yeah, douchebag,  what you and your pathetic ilk were up to here was noted quite long ago, but you didn't listen, couldn't get it, just wanting that ORI-esque blood to flow was clearly recognized and addressed

to you and those around you

by slewie

no one ever expected you to hear, btw...;  the idea that you are rational is absurd

and don't let the door hit YOU in your punk disinfo "food stamp issue" ass on the way out, either!

i didn't mean to say you posted on every thread;  i din't expect a man of you psychological narrowness to recognize his own behavior of jumping every single thread you have ever posted on (within a few dozen, since you are prolific as am i) JUST EXACTLY LIKE YER TOY-BOY FRIEND, the cowardlyLion :>  ORI

i actually witnessed him advising falak_p to do the same a few months ago on p 3 of a string!  ORI thought f_p's posts were important (myth content, which does not mean 'BAD' to me btw?) and advised him to POST ONLY AT THE TOP

so you keep pretending, asswipe

people aren't that dumb

the reason you are myBiCh?  :>  mike!  you don't NEED the "out there" gotta happen future certainties;  no one can prove it won't happen

but that doesn't mean it is TRUE!

dude!  you are a man!  you have a craft and you can make delicate and groovy things with your hands and brains and calipers and ability to read the abstact instructions

you know how to learn from mistakes i'd wager too!

free your mind from ORI-ism!

you do not need the world coming to an end to see things and express them and know why they are important;  but you are just as lazy-assed as i am!

so get rid of the fuking crutch and stop pretending you are a freaking cripple, ok?


  1. less attention;  ditto "authority" (i don't think you're addicted;  and it is ok w. slewie that you care)
  2. not knowing shit for a while while you adjust to the new emergent paradign of y.o.u. (generally the stopper to anybody's 'mind')
  3. you're gonna hafta pay more attn to current events and history to make effective points without performing "magic" with your superior knowledge

look at this string!  you have narrowed hundreds of them with your incessant string-jumping;  don't you have a damned BRAIN?  people wanna read 4-charter-wide string b/c YOU are FEATURED on the damned things?

you are certainly smart enuf to understand me and also defend yerself

but you are not smart enuf to put down the magic wand and grow up and begin understanding YOURSELF better


and don't answer me!  this is tiny-guage already!  some machinist!   thanks a lot for doing this  to hundreds of our articles and strings for the archives while you bessed us with yer asinine myhtological D&D bullshit;  and jumped every string cause ORI told ya to!

if you are not willing to LIE to deny it, maybe ya better just STFU?

i can't speak for kaiserhoff's motives, but did you see his link?

does this not indicate at least the possibility of a deTocquevillian?  if so:  YAY!

and pointing out that the Kenyan does have black ass is ok with me b/c it is [perhaps] simply true 

but maybe he is playing a "raceCard";  it is possible and again, he can speak for himself if he thinks dialogue might be possible with y.o.u.

calling him names?  you have some cred here, go_Fish1.  and like tyler, if you develop a psychosis, people might notice...

deTocqueville dodn't think people didn't need no stinking goobermint:  he was educated AND intelligent; also titled; he visited america and published 2 vols on 'democracyInAmerica' in the 1830's-40's

i'm pretty sure you can understand what i am saying, and i hope you see that you MAY not have understood what he is trying to say

and i may not have either, btw;  but poor slewie thinks both you turkeys are ok;  sp please try to recognize that you may have the same concerns about the nation

partisanship is normal, yet when the "luxury yacht" is going D.O.W.N. (ty, tyler!)  we prob'ly should not lose our capacities to rise above it;  shipwrecks are not fun;  the survivors don't reach shore with much more than their bodies and the elasmobranchii chondrichthyes may be digesting parts of those too, even if one makes it

if you think partisanship/nannyism is an asset in a shipwreck, please get the fuk offa slewie's vessel immediately;  you will not survive and you might try to save ME too!

"On August 23rd, in very blunt terms, Romney indicated that the first step towards restoring the rules of free markets would include some house cleaning at the Fed. Romney said he would fire Fed chief Bernanke. “I would want to select someone new and someone who shared my economic views” to the top spot at the US-central bank. “I want someone to provide monetary stability that leads to a strong dollar and confidence that America is not going to go down the road that other nations have gone down, to their peril,” Romney added. His sidekick, Paul Ryan doubled down on the idea of dumping Bernanke, and his radical QE policies, summarizing his viewpoint in just two words: “Sound Money.” “We want to pursue a sound-money strategy so that we can get back the King Dollar,” Ryan said."

Anyone thinking that Romney/Ryan are serious about any of that is completely delusional. The plan is to debase the currency and inflate the debt away.

Watch him appoint William Dudley or some other Bankster crook to lead the FED. What total bullshit this is.

How stupid are Republicans? The Republicans chose a Wall St criminal for their candidate for president. Wall St criminals destroyed the American way of life and the American economy. No sane voter would choose a Wall St criminal for president.

I'm not arguing that the offering from the Democrats is any better....

Matt Taibbi has a good story on Mittens here....

How the GOP presidential candidate and his private equity firm staged an epic wealth grab, destroyed jobs – and stuck others with the bill.

Mitt Romney, it turns out, is the perfect frontman for Wall Street's greed revolution. He's not a two-bit, shifty-eyed huckster like Lloyd Blankfein. He's not a sighing, eye-rolling, arrogant jerkwad like Jamie Dimon. But Mitt believes the same things those guys believe: He's been right with them on the front lines of the financialization revolution, a decades-long campaign in which the old, simple, let's-make-stuff-and-sell-it manufacturing economy was replaced with a new, highly complex, let's-take-stuff-and-trash-it financial economy

Well, I agree he is pals w/the Wall Street leeches, but they are bigger whores than he is.

Since they have milked the Big O for all they can, their just switching contributions for the likely winner.

Matt could maybe give us a heads up on the last election, and see WHO got the bulk of  $$$$$$ of WS.

Wall St is out for Wall St................................just like ANY WHORE, who is willing to pay the most.

One thing I know,is there is no way the GOP base allows the same level of corruption, and destruction for Romney,that Oscumster has gotten away with.His ass will handed to him.

Considering it is Baby Boomers who vote, as well as seniors, they are BOTH stupid.

My father, for example, is Republican.  He is voting for Romney this November. 

He complains about ObamaCare (which he should - it's awful legislation).  Yet when I tell him the reason why I after I got hired, had to wait 6 months to get health care at my job here in MA (for which he guesses, "ObamaCare" (which isn't even implemented fully, yet), he has no clue! 

I tell him, no, it was actually "RomneyCare" (i.e. HertiageCare, since the Heritage Foundation came up with the idea) that put this rule in MA back in 2007 (in a rushed fashion, none the less, while the guy was on his way out the door).   

So, in father, who hates voting for a guy who came up with the idea!

Hell, my uncle's best friend, who lives in NJ, voted for Jon Corzine....TWICE!!!!111 

And people wonder why the country is in shambles.

There's a good ole saying at the poker table: "If you can't spot the sucker, well's probably you!"

Slings look stupid. They put the entire load on two foot-wide bands of the hull.  The net would be hard to free after the yacht was set down on hard ground, so some sort of built in hard points tied to the keel might work best. Everything else has them.

Hear that, Mr Fleming?  Gassin' on the 55, by the way.

Picture the crane operator with 40 more levers in front of him, some are touchy, some are stiff, some have delayed responses, and some affect other levers - most of them are unmarked...

THAT'S what Bernanke has in front of him - and he's not worried at all - because he has a certificate of PhD-hood, did a little homework way back when, and has other crane operators looking over his shoulder to blame.
